Winemaker Corey Beck Notes
As of last year, we’ve been able to include estate-grown Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the blend, which also includes Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, Sonoma, and El Dorado Counties. The small amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot we add help to strengthen color, weight, and structure.

The 2007 vintage got underway earlier than most years as a result of premature bud break. This occurred because of an unseasonably warm winter. The season lasted longer than normal as well because of prolonged moderate temperatures. These conditions were ideal for creating physiologically perfect fruit, which is why winemakers have declared this one of the best vintages of the decade. Our Claret is always elegant, but this year it’s a true show ...more... stopper; lush with a beautiful tapestry of smooth tannins, intense flavor, and seductive aromas. When paired with classic dishes such as beef stroganoff, leg of lamb or potato gratin, you can create a sublime dining experience.
